@ 64 - Perhaps, indeed. I remember my mom telling me about this custom going as far back as the 50s (her best friend in those days was gay).

@ 60 - I guess it depends on where you were at the time, but as far as I can remember, the Clone Moustache and the One Earring where concurrent. And I believe, from what older gays told me, that the OE even predates the CM, though it had a much longer run.

@ 64 - That's what politicians do. All of them.

You talk about purity? Don't be so naive. It's rather unbecoming to anyone of voting age.

@ 9 - I hope it was for them. Nothing worse than feeling that guilty for a so-so fuck.

@ 51 - "Many of us knew those positions were fucked up and wrong so why did she not know?"

What makes you think she didn't? She's a politician. Doesn't that say it all?

But so is Sanders, and all those who think he's somehow purer because he was an independent all those years should remind themselves that he is now a member of the Democratic party: a thoroughly calculated move. Typical of a politician.

Just saying.

I'll let that 52-year-old pop culture reference pass, Dr. Savagelove, as long as you swear that "Degraded And It Feels So Bad (Right After It Feels So Good)" was not a lame 38-year-old pop culture reference.

@ "All of my posts have assumed that everyone involved is a fairly well-adjusted human being"

I'll keep that in mind. The truth is, though, that I would never assume anything of the sort, so that probably goes a long way to explain my posts.

@ 31 - Yes, "wrong" is the wrong word. I meant the decision you were assuming he wouldn't make @ 22, i.e. leaving the wife for the GF.

And the GF could be the right person for him if he does want a child, but just not now.

@ 32 - As a gay man, I can say: yes. Avoidance is the best strategy in such situations.
Jun 29 Ricardo commented on Terror Attack at Turkey's Largest Airport.
@ 12 - Of course they would, wouldn't they? At this particular moment in time, Turkey is trying to better its image so it can get closer to Europe, so it will try by all means to distance itself from IS (and perhaps look like they're not persecuting the Kurds, just for once). I wouldn't even put it past Erdogan to have organized the attack himself just for that reason.
